Test method for empirically determining inertial properties of manual wheelchairs. J Rehabil Res Dev. 2012;49(1):51–62. Slideshow Project DOI: /JRRD JSP Study Aim – Design and study a method for empirically measuring inertia properties of manual wheelchairs. Relevance – Results will improve and generate new studies on wheelchair performance, especially during turning maneuvers, in which inertia is important.

Test method for empirically determining inertial properties of manual wheelchairs. J Rehabil Res Dev. 2012;49(1):51–62. Slideshow Project DOI: /JRRD JSP Methods – Used iMachine for tests. Spring-loaded turntable for measuring inertial properties of irregularly shaped rigid bodies. – Calculated wheelchair mass and center of mass from static force measurements using load cells. Used Newton-Euler approach. – Determined moment of inertia about vertical axis from natural frequency of system in simple harmonic motion. – Calibrated iMachine to eliminate effects of platform components on measurement error.

Test method for empirically determining inertial properties of manual wheelchairs. J Rehabil Res Dev. 2012;49(1):51–62. Slideshow Project DOI: /JRRD JSP Results Average relative error: – Mass = 0.76% – Center of mass x-axis = 0.89% y-axis = 1.99% Resolution of moment of inertia calculation depends on ratio of test piece inertia to system inertia:  ratio indicates =  measurement accuracy Gage repeatability and reproducibility test with 3 manual wheelchairs: – Each completed 3 tests by 3 different operators. – 99% of inertia variance caused by wheelchair differences.
